    Dumb Phrases we Use

    We use a lot of dumb phrases....

    Let's start with "heads up".

    The enemy has been spotted and we're about to be in a firefight. Do we REALLY want to yell "heads up"?

    Somebody's throwing rocks - shouldn't we duck our heads so as not to be beaned?

    Heads up, it's HAILING!!!

    RANDOM --- some random guy came into the room.....

    "Could care less"... NO, that means you DO care, because you could care LESS --- I noticed OBP uses the correct version of this one! "I couldn't care less".

    "most unique" - it's either unique or it's not!

    "technically" when what s meant is "actually" - because there's often nothing technical about it - "well, technically, the apple pie is better than the peach".

    And it's not EXPRESSO!!!!! No matter how much you overpay for it!

    Near miss means the opposite of its literal meaning.
    "I am not angered that the Moral Majority boys campaign against abortion. I am angry when the same men who say, "Save OUR children" bellow "Build more and bigger bombers." That's right! Blast the children in other nations into eternity, or limbless misery as they lay crippled from "OUR" bombers! This does not jell." - Leonard Ravenhill
